Mob Wives DritaMob Wives Karen

Less than a week after the Mob Wives episode aired where Drita D’avanzo apologized to Karen Gravano for getting with her ex-boyfriend Lee and pretending Karen was crazy for feeling betrayed; Drita is taking her apology back! As both ladies now reveal they might never be friends again.

In fact, Drita says the only reason she apologized at all is: “I felt bad because she was crying. I’m a softy when it comes to anybody crying.” In a new article for Hollywood Life, Karen and Drita talk about their Made-For-TV faux-lationship and subsequent man drama; admitting they are no longer friends At. All. Or as the Mob would say they’re ¡finito!

Both Karen and Drita feel the reason their friendship fell apart is Lee trust. Drita claims that Karen calling it like it is her husband Lee “scum” was too much: “I can’t see being friends with her,” says Drita. “I just think that she crossed a line that I don’t think I really could come back from. In my heart, I don’t know if I could trust her.” Drita continues: “Friend, what friend? There’s no friendship once you do that,” referring to a previous episode when Karen came over to discuss why Drita started dating her ex. The “discussion” did not go well and resulted in a screaming fight between the women where Karen insulted Lee.

Karen agrees that Drita’s apology to her was not sincere and feels: “The bottom line is, Drita was my friend, for a friend to be able to put some things in the past, you have to close the doors and be able to build on trust. So if she couldn’t apologize to me and she’s going to keep making excuses, I can’t trust her.”

Karen also adds that she doesn’t care about scummy Lee (oh, really?): “For me, it was not about Lee, I could have licked it in the butt and walked past it quick. We could have been friends and it wouldn’t have been drawn out if she said sorry and said it sincerely without hitting me with timelines and excuses and reasons for why she did what she did. But she kept missing the point — she kept thinking I was getting at him.”

In other Mob Wives friend feuds, Renee Graziano is still upset about her brawl with fellow castmate Carla Facciolo (who I am guessing from the no comment has moved on).

In a new interview for the New York Post, Renee, who is disappointed the show has portrayed her truthfully as “a loud, foul-mouthed drama queen,” is still furious about the way things went down between her and Carla at her dinner party: “Why didn’t I crack her? I’m not violent. I don’t raise my hands ever. I would never hit somebody. But I should have broken her f- – -ing jaw.” Well, obviously those two are ¡finito! as well. The article also mentioned that Karen and Renee watched last Sunday’s episode together and “both are still fuming over their spats” with castmates Drita and Carla!

So whose side are you on? Drita’s? Karen’s? Renee’s? Or Carla’s? Who else cannot wait for a Mob Wives Reunion show!? Bring it on, Vh1!

On last night’s episode of Mob Wives, the ladies sort of make amends after taking dinner party from hell to a whole new meaning. Renee pretends she wants to date a normal man who is not in the mafia, Drita and Carla have incarcerated husband situations, and Karen finally snaps and throws a vase at Renee, but fails to knock any sense into her. Darn.

The episode began exactly where last week’s ended – with brawling in Renee’s dining room! Renee laments that when she set up her Sunday dinner it was to get the girls together to calmly talk about their mental issues, but sadly her “beautiful Sunday dinner has turned into a cage fight.” Renee should have expected as much since with all the issues these girls have it would take more than a Sunday evening to work through everything; more like Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and all the way to the next week!

During the argument ready to rumble Drita “squares up” to break apart Carla and Renee, but Karen “The Bull” Gravano says Drita is going to have to get through her first! Clearly those two definitely still have high school drama things to work out. Good thing friend savior Renee invited them both! Renee claims that not only is Carla “attacking” her in her own home, she is also screaming in her face because she doesn’t want to hear the truth about her own boyfriend. Remember, Renee just wants to protect Carla from dating a serial a** groper. Carla has a different opinion of Renee “That mouth don’t stop going!” Graziano – she thinks Renee is a liar. So Carla tells Renee as much.

Mob Wives Cast - Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, and Carla Facciolo

Good news fans of Mob Wives! The VH1 network has officially picked up the show for a second season.

This news comes as no surprise as the show has been doing very well in ratings, averaging over 1.3 million viewers per episode. All four women will be back for season two.

In addition to the season 2 news, the network also announced a “Mob Wives” reunion special is set to air July 10. Something tells us there will be plenty of security on the set!

And if you thought the last ‘dinner from hell’ episode of the show was dramatic, you ain’t seen nothing yet!

According to a new report by the NY Post, there is still at least one more fight coming our way this season. Castmates and former friends Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo reportedly got into a nasty physical fight during the season finale taping at the Rare View bar atop the Shelburne Hotel in New York. In fact things got so crazy, that it left one castmate bloody.

Once Karen and Drita got physical, security is said to have stepped in and separated the two, who were taken in different elevators. However, the fight spilled into the lobby, and security ended up throwing them out of the hotel according to sources.

Another cast member Renee Graziano ended up bleeding in the scuffle after she cut her leg on a bench.

In the mean time, it seems VH1 has yet to decide on whether or not they will air the fight. A VH1 rep stated, “At this time, we are concerned about the well-being of our cast. The network has yet to determine whether we will air this footage.” VH1 has standards?

TELL US – YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE REUNION & SEASON 2? SHOULD VH1 AIR THE FIGHT FOOTAGE?

Last night’s episode of Mob Wives was about lying liars and the lies they tell, oh and boyfriend hatin’ mafia princess Renee Graziano. Meanwhile Karen Gravano and Drita D’avanzo are still upset about last weeks fight about some guy they both like. Carla Facciolo’s boyfriend is grabbing a** all over town, well he’s grabbing almost everyone’s a**, and Renee just wants everyone to get along by acknowledging that she is always right about everything!

The show started out with Drita going to Carla’s to rehash the “Karen Loves Lee Forever” fight from last week. She is still upset that Karen called Lee a “scumbag.” Hey, truth hurts… Carla comments that a man should never come between friends. Drita explains to us that she went easy on Karen because if she wasn’t such a good friend she would f*ck her up especially because Karen was talking about Lee where her kids might hear. Across town in a parallel universe, Karen is complaining to Renee about Drita! For some reason Renee keeps repeating that Drita is a coward and owes Karen an apology? Karen says she she doesn’t feel like the situation is cleared up. You know I think I agree!

On last night’s episode of Mob Wives we discovered that friends and boyfriends simply don’t mix in the wilds of Staten Island. Here are the rules: 1) Friends aren’t allowed to date your ex-boyfriend; even if you maybe dated him 20 years ago when you were in high school, but if you do happen to date your friend’s ex, you should definitely be honest about it, according to Karen Gravano. And rule number 2) Your boyfriend isn’t allowed to talk to any of your friends – even if he may be joking or trying to be nice, because if that friend happens to be Renee Graziano things are going to get crazy.

The episode started off with Renee making an eerie observation that for once all four of them are getting along. As soon as the words were spoken we all know that means by the middle of the episode somebody will be brawlin’. To celebrate the fact that no one was fighting, choking each other, or threatening to break their twat neck they had girls’ night out in NYC – but really it was Renee’s night out. Renee, Renee, Renee – did you know she is a Mafia Princess, you know, Anthony Graziano’s daughter? Just in case you didn’t, this is your reminder: Renee is a mafia princess and Anthony Graziano – infamous mob boss of Staten Island – is her father.

Renee educates the waiter letting him know that because she is a special kind of girl – a mafia princess – she is “very spoiled” and their table needs a lot of attention; it’s not her fault – she doesn’t mean to be difficult – but she is. While at dinner she is flirtatious and outgoing – larger than life – and literally talking about how large she is by complaining about being fat and needing liposuction for her arms. When Carla and Drita suggest going to the gym, she rebuffs them – that’s what plastic surgeons are for – she can get the same results after 24 hours on a surgeon’s table. Renee knows from experience since she had a nose job and during a toast to her friends she declares: “Here’s to the realest f*cking people, aside from my nose.”

Mob Wives

Last night’s Mob Wives episode was all about loyalty – and drinking. It was also about how having drinks with a girlfriend and loyalty do not often mix well if you are Karen Gravano. The episode also focused on what else: Renee Graziano’s loyalty to the lifestyle, loyalty to friendships and family, how Drita D’avanzo betrayed her, and whether or not it is worth it to stay connected to her past. Oh, and how she and Karen are now practically family again. As for Carla Facciolo, well she was pretty invisible again this episode, but her storyline was about family also.

The day after the Mob bust – and after a terrible day, in her own words, “Renee needs a drink.” We find out Junior is already out on bail and is likely only looking at 18 months for gambling (wait – isn’t that legal?) Renee expresses her frustration about the cycle of dealing with prison again and not being part of a normal family, because: “There’s always somebody missing to the federal f*cking government,” Renee doesn’t want that life anymore, but it is just so difficult to break away. By the way – did you see those amazing fur boots Renee had on? Girl definitely likes her fur from head to toe. After all, nothing says “bitch, I’ve arrived,” mafia-style like fur as we were taught last week in Renee’s Mob Wives 101 class.

Mob Wives

Last night’s episode of Mob Wives was, again, about how life when you are part of the “the underworld” isn’t just about the glitz and the glamor, as Renee Graziano’s ex-husband (who is also her son AJ’s father) was arrested in a major FBI bust. Drita D’avanzo had more concerns about her husband’s sentence, and Karen Gravano began coming to terms with and exploring her feelings about her upbringing. Carla Faccilo was, as Nene Leakes likes to say: “Casper the Ghost” this episode because, yeah she was practically invisible. What an emotional episode this was – highs and lows galore, a total emotional roller coaster. As my mother said: “I feel like I need an anti-depressant after watching these broads.” Snark obviously runs in our family.

There was a lot of build up in the first part of the show until we finally got to the part all the previews were throwing in our faces: the FBI arrests! I waited on the edge of my seat for the juicy part and, yeah… it was pretty much a let down. The most we got to see of any FBI action was Renee crying in her kitchen about the arrests and the ladies showing CNN news footage. Foiled again by the infamous preview hype! It was nice that there was a significantly fewer number of bleeps so we could actually understand what they were saying to each other, though.

Surprise Surprise – appearing on a reality show called Mob Wives is causing family drama for the stars of the show!

In a new interview with the Hollywood Life, Renee Graziano revealed that her super gangster father Anthony Graziano (who is currently behind bars in a federal penitentiary), no longer speaks to her since her decision to appear on Mob Wives and expose all their family secrets and scandals to the world. You don’t say?! You mean a heavy duty gangster and former consigliere of the Bonanno crime family, doesn’t want his daughter on TV bragging about how gangster she is and acting like a Mob Groupie? Hmmm…

When asked about her father’s reaction to her appearance on the series, Renee says: “He has no reaction because we don’t speak, not now, not after I made the decision to do the show. He said to me, ‘You made your bed. Now sleep in it.’ My father doesn’t agree with anyone putting their life on [TV].”

Renee goes on to explain that going on the show wasn’t about her father anyways, but about her, of course: “I think I needed to develop my own identity outside of my family life — out of the lifestyle,” Renee reveals in the article. She goes on to add, “I was also pretty tired of people judging me upon a lifestyle — not realizing that I’m a woman, I’m a mom, I go through hardships. No sympathy — that’s not something that I want from anyone. It was my way of really planting my feet and making a change in my life.”

Oh, well, that’s an original attitude for the star of a reality show – narcissism! I mean what has Renee done that would give her a reason to be on TV except be related to some gangsters? Renee also says that everyone else in her family supports her and that her father loves her anyways.

In more family dramz for the ‘ladies’, Mob Wives resident Ultimate Fighter Drita D’avanzio is facing some criticism for her parenting skills. In an article by HollyBaby, a “source” (re: someone Drita got in a drunken brawl with and punched in the face) reveals that Drita – scandal! – has been taking her nine-year-old daughter Aleeya to visit her dad Lee D’avanzo in prison. Well, I mean otherwise would this girl even know what her father looks like? He’s been incarcerated pretty much her entire life!

The article explains that the first time Lee went away, Drita told Aleeya that her daddy was off working. But poor Aleeya still had to deal with teasing from her classmates that she didn’t have a daddy. And when Lee returned home, Aleeya “had a really hard time adapting,” says the source.

“When he first came home, Aleeya told all her friends, ‘See, I told you I had a dad.’” However, the second time Lee went to prison Drita decided to tell her daughter the truth. “The second time around she decided to tell her where her dad was so she didn’t think he up and left for no reason,” explains the friend. The article also lets us know that Lee and Drita are still happily (really?) married: “She has her second thoughts every now and then, like anyone would after 12 years of marriage. But she is standing strong.” The source adds that Lee “has another 2 to 4 years left.”

I don’t think it’s a big deal for her to take her older daughter to see her father, as long as she doesn’t take her younger one. What do you think? Should Drita be dragging her fourth grader to the federal pen for visits or not? Also, if you were Renee’s dad – would you disown her?
